MEET THE SURVEYOR

Andrew F. Spiewak

Illinois Professional Land Surveyor

My thoughts on pricing professional services for the land survey that I would like to share with potential and existing customers. With the internet, all the world's knowledge is at your fingertips. Use it!

Understanding what is going on, whether you are selling a home, getting a permit for site improvements, or building a house it is critical to negotiate a deal for surveying services. As a professional land surveyor and a consultant, I'm the nicest Shark there is because I tell the truth. I have the expertise and you will get the services that will exceed your expectations. I'm a fan of dealing with reality, dealing with the truth and giving you a fair price. So many people get caught up with the idea that price is the only thing that matters when ordering a survey, but as they say, you get what you pay for. Our no-nonsense approach to projects while keeping a diligent eye on the bottom line has given us a distinct advantage. I do not get all the jobs but no deal is better than a bad deal.
